At the end of Florida phase...

Post by 2/75_wife »

I was hoping one of you fine Rangers could tell me when you knew you were graduating from Ranger School? My husband's class is slated to graduate on Friday and I'd rather skip the heart attack each ring of the phone brings by narrowing down the time line for when I might hear from him. I know he'll be back at Benning at some point this next week and I wasn't sure if he'd be able to call before or after to let me know he's graduating. I usually stick to the Foxhole but I figured that most Rangers go through the course before they are married. That certainly seems to be the case at 2nd Bat. Thanks in advance. Your knowledge is greatly appreciated.

I got to call from Florida a day or two before we went back to Benning. Probably Tuesday or Wednesday?

Thank you very much Ranger Disinfertention. You've just saved me a weekend trip to the ER for continual heart spasms.

As I recall......

I didn't feel the need to call anyone, but I know that your hubby most certainly will... anyone still standing by the last patrol at Eglin was undoubtedly gettin tabbed but I'm most certain there are a few who figured out how to blow it at that point, but they're usually from 1st Batt, all the good lookin surfer dudes ended up there! We 2nd Batt on the other hand were generally not much to look at on the dance floor, but undoubtedly your husband will prove me a liar !

You hang in there young lady, and the Lord's blessings to you both.

He will know during his AAR after his leadership position. You will know as soon as he can call when he gets out of the swamp. Hang in there. Most times no call is better than an early call. I know we had 2-3 days at Eglin after the last patrol before shipping to graduation at Benning so look at a Wed-Thurs phone call. Wish your Ranger luck!!!

I then asked the Lord: "Why was there only one set of footprints?"
He answered: "The terrain was beginning to constrict and our hit time was coming close. So I put us in a Ranger file."
